Have you lost your job due to Corona Virus? Need a CV?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Most of my clients are people wanting to immigrate to Australia, NZ, Canada, UK, UAE and many other countries.

I very rarely have clients from SEA- this is just a very special offer to help, if anyone needs the assistance.

I’m not interested in what other writers charge or provide - I’m not looking for advice on my product offering. Thanks.

While you're at it Grammar Nazi, what's with the apostrophe after "years". Also, shouldn't CV have a couple of punctuation marks, such as C.V.?

"I am a qualified journalist and CV writer with ten years' experience"

p.s. this is what a lockdown does to you...

I normally charge quite a bit more, this is a very special offer for this horrible situation.

It may be a special deal for you, but I think it is still way too expensive and taking advantage of people. I paid a Bangaldeshi $10 on Fiverr a while back to do mine. Did a great job in my opinion. $50 for a resume is spendy, but some people might do it. Taking advantage of a serious epidemic to try and sell your services may be morally questionable though.

How about donating your services to those affected? I'm sure we would all congratulate you for that...

IMO, Fifty bucks is very cheap. Why in the world would it be morally questionable for her to advertise a service at a discounted rate? Is all business and trade to cease until the virus is no longer a concern?

There's nothing morally questionable about Rozz' services.

However, there is plenty questionable, morally and otherwise, about a guy who describes high school girls as "eye-candy".

and you get to look at the eye candy hanging out there from ISPP across the street.

The offer is there if anyone wants my help. It’s not compulsory. :)

I would genuinely be professionally interested in the quality and style of a $10 Bangladeshi CV.
Having recruited dozens of staff in my previous life, I have assessed hundreds of CVs.
I would really like to see the turn of phrase a Bangladeshi would use, how they structure the CV, and the impact of the finished article.
Could you perhaps post some of the content (suitably edited to avoid identity) so we can compare a $10 CV to Roz’s $50 offering.
